SRI LANKAN BOATS &
I believe that Truth is a Universal power.
Today when I read the following from one group member to another, I identified
with most of it:
[You are still caught up in the web
of illusion , the web of maya!
you consider your sensual experiences as normal and natural , of course they
are as long as you relate everything with your senses and brain . You need to
go above that and break free from the web , then you will enter a different
dimension, not physically nor mentally but in a different frame . Some may call
that “at a spiritual “ level but I don’t like to give a tag for that unnameable
state of inquiry. That inquiry does not stem from your mind or knowledge but it
just awakens without any effort . ]
giving shape and form is needed in Democracy where those in junior positions
empower those in senior positions. When we become the ‘root’ of an issue, the mind
automatically transcends the physical and mental. Hence ‘Root-Cause’ in management. The mind
that discovers the ‘root’ is certain to support the superstructures that bear
the fruits. In democracy, the fruits
that live/ benefits, need to be equal to the fruits that perish / costs.
One of the
ways to contribute to this balance in democracy is to break down a program into
projects where the costs and benefits are transparent to the common junior.
refugee program continues to lack this transparency and hence becomes the
playing field for undemocratic politicians.
The latest example has been presented by
ABC through its report headed – ‘Labor
sends election-day asylum seeker boat arrivals back to Sri Lanka, slamming
Coalition's mass text 'disgrace'
Two days ago, I wrote under the heading ‘ HORSE TRADING IN VISAS’:
[Our Australian elections 2022 – confirmed how this worked to defeat
Labor Senator Kristina Kenneally who demonstrated special treatment for a Sri
Lankan Tamil family . ]
The way I see it, Ms Kenneally singled out this family to indicate her investment in immigration policy. Such
singling out amounts to ‘promising benefits’ in the minds of low level investors
in Australia. They are then received at that level by would-be refugees who self-assess
their eligibility to come to Australia as refugees. The recent boat from Sri
Lanka which was used politically by the Liberal party is such a creation.
The Kimberley Kitching case where three Labor senators, including Ms
Keneally, were accused of bullying a new member – ought to have alerted the
Labor leadership that when policy is brought down to political level of ‘likes
and dislikes’ the system becomes costly to maintain. The senior may mean
something but the junior without faith is likely to interpret at different
level. Both could be ‘right’ as per their respective group levels but they
would not form natural policies that would work on their own. Only actual experiences
where policies meet reception – mental and/or in action – become completed
natural policies that spread themselves.
